RANE SLAMS SENA OVER ECO-SENSITIVE STATUS ROW

rane-slams-sena-2Maharashtra Revenue Minister Narayan Rane criticised the Shiv Sena over the latter’s demand on declaring coastal Sindhudurg district eco-sensitive. Speaking during an event organized to mark World Tourism Day, Revenue Minister Narayan Rane stated that those who do not know the meaning of the term eco-sensitive are raising the demand. He further added that he has written a letter to Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, asking him not to take any decision on the issue without consulting him. A delegation of Sena leaders, led by MP and former Union minister Suresh Prabhu had recently met Deshmukh, demanding that the Sindhudurg district, declared as a tourism district by the Central Government in 1997, be declared as an eco-sensitive district to protect the region’s fragile ecosystem and bio-diversity.
